mohammed as blas fa mouse. we don't know if this person is base based in the united states and that's to whom the video is attributed as why the attacks were made on american properties abroad. we don't know if there were more complex reasons. this is not the first time that perceived criticism of islam has been reacted to violently in the muslim world. a florida pastor promoted what he was calling "burn a koran day." that spurred days of protests in afghanistan killing nine people there. in 2005 it was cartoons depi depicting the prophet mohammed. and u.s. service members accidentally burned copies of the koran in order to dispose of them. it sparked riots throughout afghanistan killing 30 people overall. but again, breaking news at this hour. a day of violent protests in libya and egypt. the american consulate and the american embassy in egypt. and reports still unconfirmed at this time that one american may have been killed at that consulate attack. this is an evolving story. we're still trying to get confirmation, but we'll update you as we learn more. that's tonight's breaking

with other western nations, including the united states, about their response to the syrian civil war. remember, last month, our president drew a line in the sand saying plans for possible military involvement would change if syria uses or even moves their potentially deadly chemical weapons. president obama's remarks came at height of the election season, of course, that same week, governor romney said fell elected he would send u.s. troops to syria to keep those weapons from falling into the wrong hands. the violence has reportedly reached a new milestone: according to groups in the country, 5,000 people were killed in syria's civil war during the month of august, alone. if true, it is the highest one-month death toll since the crisis started to unfold more than 17 months ago. the chief fox correspondent, jonathan hunt, is in new york city with that report. a new united nations envoy is taking over for kofi annan but he does not sound optimistic. >>jonathan: he does not. he is a well traveled algerian diplomat, who, in fact, brought about an end to the lebanese civil war in 1990. bu

been going in terms of violence, and also, he says this is not over yet because if the united states does not respond appropriately to his mind, which means punishing those involved with this film, he says these protests could continue. i said, what do you want to have dope to the filmmakers? he said, well, i'd like to see them tried in front of a sharia court meaning if they don't repent for insulting the prophet, he thinks they should be executed. that shows how quickly, simply how a jihadist leader talks about an anti-american protest brings out a few thousand people in front of the u.s. embassy. that shows the ground swell of anti-americanism now taking place in cairo. back to you. tracy: leeland, out in cay row, thank you very much. ashley: continuing with rising tensions in the middle east, oil traders growing more concerned as conflicts spread west to oil rich nigeria. phil flynn has more on this. are you concerned then, phil, what's going on in nigeria? >> i am right now. see, egypt doesn't produce a lot of oil, and because we built in good buffer of supply in case of a disru

tax rate. the united states have highest corporate tax rate in the industrialized world making us less competitive. we need to bring down the corporate tax rate to attract investors and different corporations as well. we have to simplify the corporate tax code. a lot of extra provisions that can be reduced to simplify and make corporate taxes and individual taxes easier. reducing the rate and simplifying the deductions is the key winning formula. dennis: as soon as we hear reduce the rate that will make some americans feel they are favoring corporations. do you guys want overall corporate tax revenue to go up to help balance the budget? >> corporations have a role to play in the economy and they should play commensurate with their earnings like everybody should pay in terms of how we are structured. in terms of lowering the corporate tax rate increases jobs and that helps americans. by lowering the corporate tax rate you help the economy and individual americans and that is the key to getting the economy started again. dennis: overall should there be an alternative minimum tax so every
to be president of the united states. this is nuts. if he simply filed normally, taking the deductions he was legally able to take, he would have paid a lower tax rate than he paid. purely for show he deliberately inflated his tax rate on purpose. on mad o owe blog today it was said mr. romney was in the preferred selection of selecting his own tax rate and then working backwards from there. this is a mess for the romney campaign. in these new tax returns we learn mr. romney made $13 million in total income last year. aside from the gee whiz factor of his making $13 million a year, even though he hasn't had an actual paying job since 1999, aside from that there is also the fact that even other average millionaires in this country pay way more in taxes than mitt romney pay. your average tax rate for your run of the mill millionaire now is 25%. but mitt romney is a special kind of millionaire. he doesn't pay 25%. he only pays 14.1%. how do you get 10 points below the rate that even the other millionaires are paying? you get that by trying, by working really hard by avoiding taxes. as the wa

one best seller in the united states. this is a topic a lot people are very curious about. so what extra pressure does that put on the u.s. government, mark? >> well, tremendous. now, if anyone remembers back to the pentagon papers case 40 years ago and the thought of could the government stop publication of the book? the legal standard is just too high. the fact is is the book's been out. and obviously media has copies of it. so it would be too difficult to put the genie back in the bottle. the publisher has ratcheted this up. not only increased the print run but expedited the publication date from the 11th to the 4th. so practically speaking there's not even any time for the government to do anything. >> some people might say this is disgusting. you come back, all these other guys are on your team and they don't do this and you want to get rich and you go and put a pseudonym and write the book. other people say no, what's wrong with what he did, after all, the president gave details of what happened in the raid. it's his version where they said bin laden was reaching for a gun an
's self-righteousness. this is a party who called mitt romney, who's running for president of the united states, a felon. as someone who creates cancer in women. a vampire. somebody who abused his dog, dogs, who's waging a war on women. why this spot is resonating is because it comports with the reality that people are living. that there are two americas. one america is paying, is producing and paying. and the other america is being paid not to produce. that's their reality with this endless unemployment benefit, and all of the transfer payments. we have the greatest number of people and the greatest number of households that are dependent on some sort of government largess and people are reacting to it, because we can't afford it anymore. >> before i get inundated by tweets saying i'm a tool for the obama white house, we have done plenty on, you know, are debby wassermann schultz's incorrect statements on things. people on unemployment checks don't want to work, essentially what you're saying. there's a whole class of people getting these handouts. do you really believe that? >> that's
single experience with the voter. barack obama, president of the united states, is a millionaire, as he likes to remind us. yet, he still speaks to and for people that are hurting. so to the extent that ann romney was successful in talking to women about how they feel, which i thought she did well in doing, i think the coverage that she got from us was well deserved. >> and you have to keep in mind, this is somebody that the majority of the american people aren't necessarily tuned in to this election yet. certainly many aren't paying attention to the candidates -- and they're up against the most popular first lady in a very long time. >> let's talk about that as you as a woman and did other women you talked to whether they like the romney ticket or not feel a resonance with ann's snej>> the best line she gave is that it's not a storybook marriage, what i have a real marriage. i think that connected with me as a woman. she talked about some of the fights they have. what was also effective was that biographical video that they played thursday night, before clint eastwood came out. it was
